Here’s the latest in my effort to expose the damage that is being caused by ObamaCare. I missed this when it was originally published at CNS News, but here it is now
More than 60 doctor-owned hospitals across the country that were in the development stage will be canceled, said Molly Sandvig, executive director of Physician Hospitals of America (PHA).
“That’s a lot of access to communities that will be denied,” Sandvig told CNSNews.com. “The existing hospitals are greatly affected. They can’t grow. They can’t add beds. They can’t add rooms. Basically, it stifles their ability to change and meet market needs. This is really an unfortunate thing as well, because we are talking about some of the best hospitals in the country.”
The organization says physician-owned hospitals have higher patient satisfaction, greater control over medical decisions for patients and doctor, better quality care and lower costs. Further, physician-owned hospitals have an average 4-1 patient-to-nurse ratio, compared to the national average of 8-1 for general hospitals.
Further, these 260 doctor-owned hospitals in 38 states provide 55,000 jobs, $2.4 billion in payroll and pay $509 million in federal taxes, according to the PHA.
So, these hospitals reportedly do a better job, and they’re being cut off, and not permitted to expand. But, we’re going to give millions of people insurance, and they’re going to go WHERE for treatment? Or is that the intent? Is this simply another crisis to create, and then exploit?
There is debate as to the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of these hospitals, but many of these claims come from competitors, so you can judge their claims by reading the linked article.
